Skechers Stress Fractures Lawsuit Filed on Behalf of Woman Who Suffered Six Stress Fractures Allegedly from Skechers Shape-Ups Toning Shoes, by Wright & Schulte LLC
Date:5/3/2013

Dayton, OH (PRWEB) May 03, 2013

Wright & Schulte LLC, an experienced unsafe product liability law firm, filed a Skechers injury lawsuit on behalf of a Tennessee woman who suffered six stress fractures allegedly due to her month long use of Skechers Shape-Ups toning shoes. The Skechers stress fractures lawsuit, which was filed in the Skechers Toning Shoe Product Liability Litigation (MDL 2308) currently underway in U.S. District Court, Western District of Kentucky, names Skechers USA Inc., Skechers USA Inc., II, and Skechers Fitness Group as defendants. (Case No 3:13-cv-00018-TBR)

The skechers lawsuit joins others filed by Wright & Schulte LLC against Skechers in the Skechers MDL 2308 Multidistrict Litigation under U.S. District Court Judge Thomas B. Russell. Richard W.

Skechers Lawsuits Continue to Rise Even after $40 Million Settlement with FTC

According to the Skechers stress fractures complaint, the plaintiff purchased Skechers toning shoes on December 2011 from a retail shoe store in Crossville, Tennessee, after seeing many television and print advertisements promoting health benefits of the shoes. These advertisements claim that Skechers Shape-Ups toning shoes provide improved cardiac function and orthopedic benefits. The Skechers fracture lawsuit claims that had the plaintiff known that the toning shoes provided no benefit to her health, she would not have purchased or worn the shoes, and would not have incurred the injuries that she did.

The Skechers stress fractures lawsuit states that after wearing the shoes for 25 to 45 minutes a day for two weeks, the plaintiff began wearing the shoes during her daily activities. In February 2012, the plaintiff experienced excruciating pain in her feet and ankles. Her physician ordered X-rays and a bone density test which revealed the plaintiff was suffering from six stress fractures in her feet and ankles. Because of these stress fractures, the plaintiff had to use crutches and wear boot casts until January 2013, causing her to lose wages while also causing her to incur significant medical expenses.

The Skechers stress fractures lawsuit alleges that the manufacturers of Skechers Shape-Ups toning shoes knew the footwear produced a substantial risk of causing chronic injuries and inducing falls because of the unstable rocker-bottom sole that alters gait mechanics and creates instability. The complaint references a study conducted by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) which found that toning shoes showed no ‘statistically significant increases in either exercise response or muscle activation’. The study concluded that there is “simply no evidence to support the claims that these shoes will help wearers exercise more intensely, burn more calories or improve muscle strength and tone,” the lawsuit states.
